Absolutely fabulous! I can't believe that so few ingredients can produce such a wonderful flavor. My only issue was that I used the 5 lb brisket and after 3 hours it was still like shoe leather. Ended up needing 5 hours for fork tender.

Absolutely fantastic. I was looking for something a little quicker than my usual brisket recipe when I found this one. I will be making it again! Very moist and tender. We didn't even need a knife. The sauce was very flavorful too! Thanks for sharing!
